Episode 70: Failing Forward with Lea Woodford

Episode Overview

We’ve all faced challenges and suffered set-backs in our lives and careers. But it’s how we react, get back up and move ahead that makes the difference. No one knows this better than today’s guest, Lea Woodford. She faced years of adversity, only to use those lessons to become CEO and founder of smartfem.com and Smartfem Entertainment.

Through this platform, Lea has launched her own magazine and television shows which empower, educate and help other women launch their careers. She also talks to Gina and Rachel about shifting business models as changes arise, aspiring to be the “fairy godmother” instead of the princess, and her views on “The Bachelor”. You won’t want to miss her extraordinary story and insight.
